Image is a southeasterly view from Bailey Hill, north of Palmer, toward the Knik River valley. Chugach Mountains are in background. Middle ground is heavy forest. Barely visible through the trees is a road section before it curves in alignment necessary to ascend Bailey Hill, ultimately arriving at the point from which this photo was taken. This was the only point on the road providing this expansive view of the Valley, thus the local name “Inspiration Point”, and a popular stop for photographs. The road, which ultimately became Glenn Highway, was later straightened to cut through Bailey Hill, eliminating public access to this favorite viewpoint.
